Wolves and elk have complicated the work of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, charged with balancing those populations, and on Thursday, the Idaho Fish and Game Commission will vote on a plan to hire a hunter to remove two wolf packs in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, and a public meeting on the proposal is set for Wednesday in Boise.
